ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? I know I am, it is my favorite time of year and honestly I have been looking forward to it since the end of last football season.  The 95th NFL season officially starts this Thursday, the 4th, with the annual kickoff game featuring defending Super Bowl Champs, the Seattle Seahawks vs the Green Bay Packers. While neither of those are my team, I will be rooting for the Packers- gotta love those crazy Cheeseheads 😉

I’m actually a New York Giants fan- their first regular season game is against the Detroit Lions on the 8th, which they’ll obviously win! Mostly because this is their punter:


Oh, hi there Steve! So nice to look at you :)

In all seriousness, I actually love football so much that I usually host a kick off party and a Super Bowl party every year if I am not celebrating it amongst friends else where.  Regardless if I am hosting it or not, I always make some fun football food to munch on but try to keep the snacks as healthy as possible.  One of my favorite snacks to serve is roasted chickpeas. They offer a crunch like a chip but are packed with fiber which helps to fill you up and keep you full!

For this particular recipe, I chose to make Buffalo flavored roasted chickpeas which are a play on the traditional Buffalo chicken wings that are normally served at football parties but without all the unhealthy deep fried fat.

I used just a few simple ingredients to create the flavor profile- hot sauce, ghee aka clarified butter, garlic powder, onion powder and salt & pepper!
